He is survived -by his widow, three daughters, one son and eleven grandchildren. Now begins tbe season Of the mailman's discontent. Of his haste to take the job.no doubt, He'll many times repent. \Your job's a snap'' the farmers say When the summer breezes blow. It's a \cold snap\ for the mailman Whan it's forty degrees below. He faces blizzards, gets stuck in drifts. And struggles with frozen locks. But tbe greatest trial of a carrier's life Is tbe pennies in tbe box. Wbon It snows and blows the carrier's bands With tbe cold get stiff and numb. Then It's quite a trick to pick up a cent. With a frozen finger and thumb. And sometimes to express his feel­ ings New \slang w^rds\ he'll invent, As be slits tbe snow In a patron's box In search of a missing cent. It gives bis mouth that \dare brown\ taste, It whitens bis scanty locks, Tbis everlasting squabble With tbe pennies In tbe box It's tbougbtles-nees that causes Tbe mailman all this woe. Kinder people than his patrons Are not found here below. \When the roll is called UD yonder\ Tbey will surely all be there. j Perhaps the mailman may squeak in It he's good and doesn't swear. It you want St. Peter to open The Gate, When your rutal carrier knocxs. Please buy stamps Instead of leaving Tbe pennies in the box. —Exchange COUNTY COURT. The Chatham Trespass Case Tried.

A new ticket in the form of a little yellow card about as big as an nnnn»)l pass Is issued by tbe Canadian Pacific railway and entitles the bolder to go round the world upon the company's roil and steamship lines, says the Chi­ cago Tribune* The ticket reads from \Montreal Canada, to Montreal, Can­ ada,\ and, except for the little card local tickets or the usual form of com­ mutation ticket issued by the raih-oada, It is the smallest ticket ever Issued. To carry the ordinary ticket sold by the railroads for a trip across the Unit­ ed States from coast to coast the trav­ eler needa a special satchel. The Ca­ nadian Pacific is tbe only railroad which has Its rails stretching front ocean to ocean with its own steamship lines circling the remaining part of th* (lobe. The first of these new tickets was issued to Fred Shaughnessy, SOB of Sir Thomas G. Shaughnessy, pres­ ident of the road. Tbe route taken by the bearer of one of these tickets is from Montreal to 8t Johns, N. B., via the Canadian Pacific railway, thence to Liverpool, England, by the Canadian Pacific-At­ lantic steamship line. From Liverpool the traveler goes on board the Mont- eagle, a Canadian Pacific boat, which sails for Hongkong by way of the Cape of Good Hope, stopping at Cape Trwa and .Singapore. From Hongkong tbe bearer of the ticket takes the Empieai line steamers for Vancouver, stopplag at Yokohama, and from Vancouver back to Montreal over the lines of tbe railway company.
